Yikes! Quite a few players don't belong here. Audette, Ribeiro, and Dagenais all have supbar speed. Dackell and Sundstrom's speed are average. Markov is a fluid skater, not sure if I would call him that fast.

1. Kilger
2. Bulis
3. Dykhuis
4. Zednik
5. Hossa
6. Komisarek
7. Hainsey
8. Koivu
9. Ward (he ain't a pretty skater, but he gets from point A to point B quickly)
10. Markov

That's a rough list. Speed is difficult to guage unless specified what kind of speed. Game-speed? Meaning players that can use their speed in a game, as opposed to the speed a player is capable of going.

For example, Yannic Perreault has won fastest skater competitions, but in game situations he's among the slowest players out there. Donald Brashear won a fastest skater competition, but only because he gets a chance to really get moving... and he doesn't get that chance in a game situation.
